Fun and Games

After finding this website http://www.absel.org/, it reminded me of the essential need to make education more fun and interactive. There is a place for lectures, but it is a small place, reserved for pure conceptualizing. Universities in general like to think of themselves as institutions that specialize in conceptualizing. The problem is, they do it poorly. So students graduate with poor abilities to think and poor skills to perform.

Students learn skills best when they enjoy the process of learning. This link is well understood by most students and teachers. Yet the teachers don't do it and the students have come to expect it not to be. This needs to be rectified at all levels of education.
